Anybody know of anyone who makes RED anodized Titanum parts that would fit the B/T4? Alum would be ok, but not preferred!

Haven't raced in awhile.
Just got a new FT T4 and was wondering. When I start building the steering rack. How much should I screw down the (servo safer spring)? Manual says all the way. That doest seem like it would have a lot of give....

Help.

Depends how well you drive. Stay outta pipes and don't crash and tighter is better. Personally I like servo savers on my servos. Never really liked the AE setup.

Use your hands and make sure the servo saver has a little bit of give, but not much. The included setup should be just fine.

What does he mean by tighter is better? Does it give more steering? I thought it would give more protection if it wore loser.

The tighter you screw it down, the more responsive the steering will be. Because there will be less slip in the saver. But that also means it'll take a harder hit to make it do what it's supposed to do to protect the servo, which may strip the gears in the servo.
Personally I'd just lock it down tight and put a large kimbrough or racers edge saver on the servo.

i tightened my saver all the way down n added an after market servo saver. took alot of the slop out of the steering. i do actually like the ball bearing bellcrank setup, its nice and tight. it just makes the steering too fast for my liking.

now if youll excuse me, i have a bolink legends A main to take home

I was wondering when I build my T4.
What is the best way to assemble the rear/pivot plate, and not throw the alignment of the rear arms off?

I am considering making the switch form my Losi to the T4 and have a question. I raced a T4 for a couple of weeks (a buddy had a spare) instead of my Losi and I liked it. I don't know if I was actually faster in my lap times with the T4, but it sure felt like it due to the precision in the steering. BTW, all of the tracks up here are old school offroad (no blue groove) and very beat up.

Are there breakage issues associated with the steering and front arms?

Anything else I should know?

Any other converts out from Losi out there that want to give me a heads up?

Thanks

Jeel,
I've been running my T4 for a while now and the only part I replaced was the front bulkhead cuz I ate a wall! Other than from crashing, I have yet to see any difference at my local tracks on parts breakage.

Hey guys... I'm looking to pick up an offroad buggy and I've always preferred AE... Is there any real advantage of the B4/T4 over the B3/T3??

Thanks!

Ron

if you want to race competitively, you want a B4.
B4 has been dominating Long island raceway for a past couple weeks, TQ and Wins, and breaking track record. where LOSI BK2 used to dominate.
